Application Requirements for Employment

In order to ensure full consideration of your credentials for positions of interest, please follow the guidelines below when completing an application for employment:

  • Your application MUST be completed in its entirety in order to be given full consideration. This includes all degrees awarded, institutions attended, work history, and credentials. “See Resume” will not be accepted in lieu of application completion.
  • Incomplete applications will be disqualified. Please complete each item thoroughly. Resumes are a required attachment, but not a substitute for the completion of the application. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure all required information and documents are provided.
  • List each employer and/or position held separately. Be sure to include your duties for each position when you worked for one employer and held more than one position.
  • As you describe your work history, make sure you highlight your competencies (knowledge, skills, abilities, and work behaviors) which demonstrate your qualifications for the position for which you are applying.
  • Once the application has been submitted to a particular posting, NO additional changes to the application can be made. Please be absolutely sure everything is completed and attached before final submission. After twenty-four hours, you may submit a revised application. The most recent complete application will be advanced to the hiring manager.


References, including names, contact information, and relationship are required at the time of application. You must include professional references only; preferably past or current supervisors.
